Wedding Card

Had a couple of weddings to go to this summer and luckily Cricut had a free cut of the bride and groom.  So cut out a few and made this simple, elegant card.  Put the dress thru the Swiss Dots embossing folder and then the background is the Floral Border embossing folder.  Used my Viva Pearl Pen for the pearl dots on the dress and background.  And used a piece of vellum for the veil and pop dotted the man and woman - so simple!

Thinking of You Flower

I am always making Thinking of You cards for a few special people in my life and here is another one.  The blue/purple background, and flower, were cut with the Cricut and then I pop dotted it all onto the pink paper.  Just a quick, easy card to let them know that I am thinking of them.

September 2013 Stamp Club

Always so much fun at Stamp Club.  Love these cards as they are all different!  The first card, "thankful" is actually a diecut and the last card would make a pretty neat any-type man card!  Love them all!

Caught a Bug?

Have had this stamp set from Inky Antics for a long time and never made a card with it because I just could not figure out how to lay it all out.  Finally figured it out and think that it turned out cute!  It has been a long time since I made a one layer card, I stamped directly on to the card front.  I colored all with Copics.  For the flyswatter, I wanted to make it so that you could see the bug underneath.  I cut out the inside of the flyswatter and then used Waste Fabric from cross stitching and removed some of the strands and viola, I have a screen!  Turned out really neat looking.  I pop dotted just the handle part as the screen part is too thin to put the dots on it.  Almost makes you want to get sick so you will get the card in the mail someday!

Chocolate Bar

This chocolate card has been in the making for over a  year!  I saw it on someone's blog and loved it and then never made it.  Even borrowed my neighbor's Traffic embossing folder and it all just sat there.  Finally, the card!  If you cut out the little squares that the Traffic embossing folder makes and then you pop dot them, cover half the image with real aluminum foil and voila, you have a candy bar!  So cute!

After making this card,  it sat on my desk for another few weeks until I had the time to search for just the right saying - sometimes that can take as long as it takes to make the card!  Hope you enjoy!

Bushel of Apples

Another die cut card!  This was once again cut out with my Cricut.  Made the outline of the basket with the apples and then cut out all the images to match the basket.  Imagine all the items that could go into this basket for all different seasons and reasons.  Expect to see more of this image in later posts - love it!

This card was a fast card to make - just cut the ATV image out using the cartridge Dude with the Cricut (has three layers).  Then I just pop dotted it onto a rough/pebble looking piece of wall paper!  Years ago I got a wallpaper book from a paint store and am still using pages out of the book!  It really gave this card a neat look and feel.  To the left is the inside of the card.  Once again, I love to play with words and so I came up with At The Very for ATV - get it - LOL!  David liked the card and he had a great birthday!

Whenever I give a card that is not mailed, I always have to decorate the envelope.  I took a model car and inked up one of the wheels and ran it across the envelope for tire tracks because my theme of the card was the ATV.  Cleaned off the tire and put the model back and no one is wiser for me doing it - shhhhh!
